"Kosovo deserves recognition from all countries of the world, therefore I invite you, participants from Latin America, Asia and Africa, to lobby for recognition of Kosovo's independence on your continents. Kosovo is a country with great economic potential and natural resources which combined with human capital means that we represent a great opportunity for foreign investment," the minister said, as quoted by the Kosovar Epoka e Re newspaper.
